Humiliated hate crime hoax Empire actor/singer Jussie Smollett gave his first interview since he was accused by police for staging his own hate crime hoax in January of last year, insisting that he’s an innocent man and that authorities are wrongly making an attempt to make an example out of him.
Smollett spoke with Marc Lamont Hill in an hour-long broadcast on Instagram Live, where he talked about his court case and the scandal that he found himself surrounded by since the beginning of last year. Most people believe he brought it all on himself, because the evidence is so overwhelmingly stacked against him.
“It’s been beyond frustrating because to be somebody that’s so outspoken… it’s been difficult to be so quiet,” he explained. “To not be able to say all of the things that you want to say, to not be able to yell from the rooftop.”
To claim you’re a victim when the very two guys who helped you pull off your scam admitted to police that you paid them to do it, and there is documented evidence that the two paid co-conspirators purchased the items used in the scam, makes what Smollett is saying seem almost sociopathic in nature.
In February, Smollett was indicted by a special prosecutor on charges of filing false police reports claiming he was a victim of a violent hate crime attack by Trump supporters in Chicago after becoming “dissatisfied” by his $1 million salary.
I used to be a huge fan of this young man’s singing talents. Before Empire began insulting much of its audience, I watched every episode and treasured the scenes where Smollett would sing. Now, I have zero sympathy for him, because he used the charge of racism against non-existent white people and Trump supporters to leverage more money from the show. People who charge accusations of racism without sufficient evidence are a piece of garbage.
The indictments were announced months after the initial 16 counts of disorderly conduct against him had been suddenly and unexpectedly dropped in a move that sparked nationwide outrage. Smollett has pleaded not guilty. Kim Foxx, the Cook County State’s Attorney who suddenly dropped the case, did so for political or racial reasons, we don’t yet know, but what we do know is that Foxx is a member of the George Soros fan club as she has ties to the anti American radical leftist’s money after he gave $2 million to a PAC that backed her. She is allegedly friends with Kim Gardner, the radical leftist Circuit Attorney for St Louis who charged the McCloskeys for defending their home when rioters broke through a locked gate and stormed onto their property during ongoing riots. Soros is allegedly fighting to change American justice by getting radical leftists elected to district attorney level positions around the country, social justice warriors who are willing to push the envelope of the justice system to turn the system upside down.
“I don’t think people realize that I’ve just been wrapped up in some form of a case for the last, approaching, in just a couple of months approaching two years,” he complained. “It’s been beyond frustrating. I’m certainly not going rogue. I’m still taking the advice of my attorneys and everything like that. But I just don’t see honestly what staying quiet has really done. Where it has gotten me.”
The actor continues to claim he is innocent, saying two witnesses said they saw white men instead of the two Nigerian brothers who told authorities Smollett hired them to setup the hate crime hoax. Did he also pay those two “witnesses” to come forward? We may never know, but what we do know is that the odds of two white guys, wearing MAGA hats, in that part of Chicago, at that hour of the night, attacking a gay black man with a hangman’s noose, and saying “This is MAGA country” is about as believable as Al Sharpton’s Tawana Brawley story.
“They won’t let this go. It doesn’t matter. There is an example being made. And the sad thing is that there’s an example being made of someone that did not do what they’re being accused of,” he said. “I would say, and again, I have to be careful what I say because I’m still in a court case, but at the same time, it’s out there. There were also two other witnesses that saw white men. They saw exactly what I say that I saw.”
Are you kidding me? Smollett is making himself out to be the victim here. Where are these two witnesses? There’s not an ounce of evidence to back his claim that witnesses saw two white men, but there’s a ton of evidence showing he paid the two brothers to help him pull off his hoax. In today’s crazy social justice world we can only rely on physical evidence, because there could be millions of people who would claim they saw two white guys that night for a million different reasons, simply because Smollett is a celebrity.
When Hill asked Smollett what he would say to people who believe he’s guilty of what he’s accused, Smollett sought to remind them that he is just a “human being.”
“I’m a human being like everybody else,” said Smollett. “I ingest the media and I read the headlines and all that type of stuff. And I’ve been guilty of taking things at face value as well. But when you see that happening, and they talking about you. You know it’s not true. Somehow it becomes different.”
“So on one hand, when I step back, I can see the way that they played the narrative, the way that they served it to people,” he continued. “That it was intentionally created to make people doubt from the very very beginning. But at the same time, I’m not really living for the people that don’t believe, because of the fact that I don’t know what to say. I can’t take that on.”
Yeah, but a pretty despicable human being who played the race card to further his financial status, which in that business would have enhanced his personal status as well. There is nothing lower than someone making racist accusations that aren’t true, except to make them up completely from whole cloth.
